Whose fault was the Holocaust?

And how long has it been?

The passage of time does not change the facts.

Oh, yeah, I forgot the Inquisition. Has it been 6 years since the Inquisition?

You didn't dispute the information, just the source of it. If the information is correct then the source of that information is irrelevant, wouldn't you agree?

I'll be the Liberal and just come out and say it. The Holocaust was Bush's fault.

I always learn something about the author of a book before I read the book.

Can you understand why I do that?

Similarly, I always check on the source before I evaluate the content of what the source asserts--even with respect to assertions of fact.

Can you understand why I do that?

I hope that answers your question.

That's the dumbest thing I ever read.
You don't "assign" a radius to a physical phenomenon. It HAS a radius.
Your claim is that the radius is infinite. But now you claim it would be finite, if it had one.
You have muddled it up so much now, it is impossible to know what your claim is, because you have contradicted yourself a dozen times.

Yes you can't measure an infinity, if you could it would in fact be a finite value.
I'm not contradicting myself, we are talking about a paradoxical event.
The only radius to the universe is time like horizon between what is observable and what is not observable. The space beyond that is at an infinite radius, hence the infinite flat model.
You can't say the universe has a radius of x distance because it's radius is infinite.

Are you saying tweetybird is an accurate source to find out something other than where a putty tat is? Cause if tweetybird is your source of information about anything but a putty tat, you're gonna get told the source IS relevant.

Odd, I just googled about that protest and there is very little about it. Mostly references to it. There was a protest against Contra aid, I think it was in 1987, and mobs were incited by Cuban radio that went downtown to egg, throw rocks, and even chase some protestors with hanging ropes. A lot of the protestors were little old ladies and men. A nice quiet and peaceful protest. The police had to put them in paddy wagons to escape. Then the city officials and police said they shouldn't be protesting there because of political sensitivities of the community.
Welcome to a new improved America via immigration.
You would have no country without immigration.

History, Dave.

A learning moment.

One time, Buck casually mentioned that he had been incorrect, once. But just once.

Where he was and how he evaded capture shows we have really no friends in the Mid East or any Islamic countries. But I like that "The Turbanators" hahahah!

No, the disaster in Iraq which has spread to the surrounding areas were Bush`s fault. And all the Repubs are acting like female freshmen highschoolers , making fun, jeering, name calling, because Obama hasn't fixed all the fuc(up of the Bush era yet.

They do nothing but make stumbling blocks out of themselves, and then point a finger, "see, he didn't fix it" Hypocrits

That's completely contradictory to what you have claimed up until now. You claimed it was physically infinite, but now you say it can't even have a physical radius because it is infinite.

If the universe is a physical phenomenon, it has a radius.

You are so fixated on infinity, you are willing to claim the universe is not a physical phenomenon.

This, of course, proves I am right - that no physical infinity can exist.

Your latest lame way around this is to say the universe has no radius, which would mean the universe is not a physical phenomenon.

Your thesis can be stated as follows:

1. The universe is a physically infinite phenomenon because,

2. It's radius is not measureable, because

3. It has no radius,

4. Therefore it is not a physical phenomenon,

5.. So it is an infinite physical phenomenon.

Your ideas are absurd, and your mind is jello.
